My tractor tire ottoman

Had this old tractor tire in the barn so I brought it into school. My students and I turned it into a killer oversized ottoman.

What's the tread life guarantee? 100,000miles?

Very innovative!

Figured I should share the rest of the stuff the class made. Our school does an art show at the end of the year and my shop rats wanted to do a man cave display so we got a little creative. Only thing not pictures because its not complete yet are the diesel piston drink coasters!!
